Japan's military is lagging in terms of its digitisation, but a smart base experiment could begin to turn the tide.
USAF tests new HUD for C-17 Globemaster III
The US Air Force's 418th Flight Test Squadron (FLTS) is completing testing on a new head-up display for the C-17 Globemaster III.
The USAF is looking to see if the Replacement Head-Up Display (RHUD) can replace the legacy C-17 display system with a more capable solution.
The three-week test saw the C-17 Integrated Test Team install RHUDs on an Edwards C-17 for a second round of testing.
The current HUD is being replaced due to obsolescence. The new RHUD, which is larger and has more clarity of symbology than the legacy HUD, is designed to be installed and removed easily for maintenance. It provides a larger field of view with a sharper image, which can provide decreased pilot workload to analyse information in the HUD.
The 418th FLTS will collect data from both flight and ground tests along with human systems integration surveys from pilots. The air force will review the compiled data to see if the RHUD is suitable to replace the legacy C-17 HUDs.
